extend desktop(hook it up to a second monitor or same one but on vga dvi et) and if youre in win xp itl lstya, win 7 youll need to repeat the process from time to time.

shortcut,as said above, with 'gpu 1' for gts since its the second card.

There is a little prob guys, I follow the guide to the letter as you said but when 1 open a card and try to open the other I get this message

Process 2724 is currently running and may also be a client with Mach. ID 2.
The program will now exit. Upon restart, this check will not be done --
You may wish to check that no client is currently running in
C:\Users\martin\AppData\Roaming\Folding@home-gpu before restarting

Any Idea?
